Convenient Sized Hazelnut Tree

Theta Filbert has a lot going for it

Here's Why:

  • Beautiful tree with large, thick green leaves
  • Resistant to pests and diseases including Eastern Filbert Blight
  • Tolerant of heat, sun and humidity
  • Convenient sized tree topping out at 10 feet

Is this the Perfect Nut Tree?

When the experts at Oregon State University set out to engineer the perfect Hazelnut tree, the result was the Theta Filbert. Conveniently sized for ease of harvesting, resistant to Filbert Blight and tolerant of harsh conditions, the Theta seems to have it all. Covering the tree are thick, green cabbage-like leaves. Aside from the numerous qualities of the tree itself, the hazelnuts are some of the best we've seen. Gorgeous, glistening, copper-colored hazelnuts abound. Created to produce high yields, the Theta's nuts fill their husks in great numbers. What's more, the Theta's flowers will pollinate and help increase production in your Jefferson Filbert trees as well.

The Quintessential Hazelnut Has Arrived

One look at a Theta Filbert hazelnut and you can see that this is a nut of the highest quality. But one taste and you'll know it's among the best available hazelnuts in the world. As September rolls in, you'll be ready to harvest scores of medium sized nuts, each appearing as perfect as the other. The flavor is rich, buttery and exactly how you'd imagine the ideal hazelnut to taste. Your family will enjoy them fresh off the tree or used to create a diversity of culinary treats for many seasons to come.

Theta (Hazelnut) Trees require a pollinator to produce nuts. For best results, pair with the Jefferson Filbert (Hazelnut.)

With all these incredible benefits, ordering the Theta Filbert hazelnut tree just makes sense. Don't delay.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Theta Filbert Hazelnut



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Theta Filbert Hazelnut.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Theta Filbert Hazelnut gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Theta Filbert Hazelnut again after the transplant is complete.

when is the best time to plant a hazelnut tree? I live on the cape by the water zip 02648
Karen B on Nov 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Hazelnut trees are tough trees that can be planted all year, as long as the ground isn’t frozen. If you plant your tree during the summer, especially during a heat wave of drought then give your tree extra water. The best time to plant is in the fall, six weeks before the first frost so your tree can get rooted into the ground before winter, or in the spring six weeks after the final frost, giving it time to become established before summer heat sets in. Keep in mind that planting during the summer still gives your tree enough time to get rooted in before the winter.

What fertilizer is best for the Jefferson Filbert and the Theta filbert trees?
BarryLover on Dec 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Fertilizers best suited for this tree will vary depending on the condition of your soil. In general, all plants require the same micro and macronutrients. A soil analysis of your particular soil will determine what your tree needs to thrive. Conditions like texture, water retention, pH, and organic matter will factor into this equation as well.
How far apart can the two hazelnut trees be and still pollinate each other?
